Oh, Where Has My Precious One Gone?

I awoke one brilliant inky dark night;
To find in dismay my love is not in sight;
The stars and moon shine with a feeble light;
Where has my secret poet taken flight?

In raging despair I search near and far;
From the cosmic heights of the farthest star;
To arctic sea depths blacker than cloying tar;
Without my Karen my soul is deeply scarred!

Ever searching I am drowned in mine own tears;
Life without her stretches down eternal years;
Her loveliness and beauty so hotly seared;
Into my love and grief for her without peer.

Without my dearest lover and friend;
My blackest grief and loneliness has no end;
If only a caressing kissing email she’d send;
An’ ever allowed her my love to tend.

Where, o where is my beloved Karen?
So fair of beauty, tender and caring;
I sit all night sighing and staring;
Wondering about her hair and the clothes she’s wearing?

I’m helpless without her, stranded in my pain;
Will all my pleading and searching be in vain?
I pray my tears will be hidden by the rain;
For my crying is my shelter, openly and plain!

Lover, hear my prayers begging for thee;
To return to my life, please come back to me;
Beloved I know you can plainly see;
All that you are and will always mean to me.

I need you back in my life, my love;
For you were sent to me from heaven above;
My lover came to me as the wings of a dove;
Tell me where you are lover – wherever or whereof?

Artist's Description

This poem siezed me by my throat and was literally vomited onto the screen, it was a very visceral experience to write it. I was surprised how much others liked it, really! And I never re-wrote it or edited it in any way… it continues to surprise me….
